The elections should be taking place today, but as of 3 this morning, the elections channel on NYUHome said that the online polls were closed.
WSN reported yesterday that Dolgin disbanded the five-member Elections Committee, which oversees council elections, and restaffed it with three members – herself and two close allies on the council. Dolgin did not notify the rest of the council about her actions.
WSN also reported that four senior council members say Dolgin has used her influence to push political opponents out of the race.
Throughout the meeting, those four council members – Vice President Megan Cruz, Student Affairs Chair Jenny Shen, former Elections Committee member Jeremy Troxel and Freshmen Representative Katy Leoni – frequently sparred verbally with Dolgin and her supporters.
